Dynamics and Particle Effects, Part 4

From their very inception, 3D programs have been used to imitate natural phenomena, creating realistic, stylized, or artistic effects. In this article-the last in this series on dynamics-I talk about the Ocean Shader, which is listed under fluid effects.

  • Simulating Real-world Film Lighting Techniques in 3D

    An absolutely critical area of 3D scene creation is the proper use of lighting and rendering techniques. This tutorial covers the mechanics of lighting and how to incorporate the language of light into your 3D scenes.

  • The Basics of the Art of Lighting (part 1): Simple Principles of and Techniques for Creating Artful Lighting

    Ultimately, digital lighting is about controlling and shaping light and shadows, reflections, refractions, and even color. This article provides a basic introduction to the principles of digital lighting using a 3D package.
